Earlier this year we saw a prototype gameplay demo for a first-person survival horror game called Allison Road. The game was initially just a one-person project, but overwhelmingly positive response to the demo led to the creation of a small development team now officially called Lilith Ltd.
A large part of this excitement for the game is born out of the excitement that gamers once had for a little playable demo called P.T., which turned out to be a new Silent Hill game being made by Hideo Kojima and Guillermo del Toro with The Walking Dead star Norman Reedus appearing in the game. Unfortunately things didn’t work out with that game, but it opened a large door for smaller games like Allison Road to step up and be what those who were so excited about that game were so looking forward to playing.
Because the game and team making it are so small, they decided to take the crowdfunding route to achieving their goals, which makes all the sense in the world. You can read much more about the game and watch the Kickstarter campaign video below.
Last year during Gamescom 2014 a game was unveiled simply titled P.T. A terrifying demo for the game was immediately made available on the PS4, but once it was completed by someone the big reveal was that it was actually a new Silent Hill game being made by Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima and Pan’s Labyrinth and Pacific Rim director Guillermo del Toro with The Walking Dead star Norman Reedus playing one of the characters.
Unfortunately it all ended up being just a big tease as things fell apart, leading to the apparent cancellation of the game (though most surely still hope it will some day find new life). But one game is aiming to offer the type of horror P.T./Silent Hills once promised to deliver. It’s called Allison Road, and a pre-alpha prototype gameplay demo makes it look like a game that could fill that depressing hole. Fear junkies are going to want to keep an eye on this one.
